  • The subject of the post from late last month was Ottawa, Ontario, Canada being home to an annual Walk for Autism Speaks Canada. Autism Speaks is North America's leading Autism science and advocacy organisation.

    To the west, the Autism Society of WA's Spokane Chapter is a Spokane, Wa.-based nonprofit that promotes lifelong community access for individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorders. It attempts to do this in various ways including through public awareness and advocacy...
    Sunday, [many individuals impacted by Autism, including children with Autism Spectrum Disorders] and Autism advocates walked through Riverfront Park for the Autism Awareness [Walk.]

    One participant said he's seen the event grow each year. He said seeing more and more people show out to the annual walk reminds him what a community can do when it works together.

    “This year, compared to four years ago, was twice the amount of people we had four years ago," Caleb Rinard said. "And to me, that inspires me. Because it means we can [walk with one another] as a community. And we can put on events that actually matter and bring people light when they have darkness. I appreciate how many people put the effort into coming out and showing that they actually care and they understand what people go through.”

    In addition to the walk, participants were also able to visit resource and information booths. One of those booths and organizers of the event is the Northwest Autism Center.

    Gillian Brundage, center clinical supervisor, said[:]
    "[The Center's clients on the Autism Spectrum] don't get to go out and do this very often, Brundage said. "This gives them the opportunity to get out and enjoy a beautiful day."

    ...Spokane mom Alexandra Mackleit is no stranger to autism. Her five-and-a-half-year-old son, Tyacke, is non-verbal.

    Mackleit said even though Tyacke can't tell her how much he loves the annual walk, she said he shows it in other ways.

    “He has a button on his tablet there’s a separate folder that he took for a show and tell at school and he said 'hi I’m tyacke, I’m 5 and a half and my favorite thing to do is take a walk with [those individuals closest to him]," Mackleit recalled. "So this is the one day a year we can do all the balloons and all show up for him.”

    Mackleit said she is thankful for the community [and those individuals closest to him that are there for] her son.

    "It takes a village," Mackleit said while holding back tears.

    Mackleit ...said having simple walks like Sunday's event gives people a chance to do something big by doing something small like walking...

          We would love to have you join us at the 2019 Autism Speaks Walk, which is scheduled on Sunday, April 28 at Atlantic Station Pinnacle Lot.

          The Walk starts at 9:00 a.m. and ends at 12:00 p.m.

          Autism Speaks runs the nation's largest autism walk fundraising event and Marcus Autism Center receives 50% of the funds raised.

          I participated in the 2018 Walk with [those individuals closest to me] – and will be doing so again in 2019—it was lots of fun and for a most worthy cause!

          Enroll in one of the Marcus-Children's teams and help us reach our goals!...

          • The subject of the post from over a week ago was Ottawa, Ontario, Canada being home to an annual Walk for Autism Speaks Canada. Autism Speaks is North America's leading Autism science and advocacy organisation.

            To the south, the Eagles Autism Foundation is a Philadelphia, Pennsylvania-based nonprofit that is dedicated to raising funds for innovative research and care programs for Autism. The nonprofit has many great ideas for how to reach out and serve the autism community with inclusivity and thoughtfulness...
            In 2018, the Philadelphia Eagles took home their first Lombardi Trophy. Later that year, the inaugural Eagles Autism Challenge was launched. And by 2019, the Eagles Autism Foundation was formally established.

            "We've raised [a significant amount of money that] is all being invested in the community," said Executive Director Ryan Hammond.

            One of their major accomplishments was establishing a sensory room [at their home stadium] in partnership with Children's Hospital of Philadelphia and Kulture City, a nonprofit that specializes in sensory modifications at similar venues. The space is outfitted with interactive items that can help people take a break from the noise and keep calm without having to leave the stadium.

            But Hammond said that not every sports venue in the country has that kind of space.

            "In fact, as we head to State Farm Stadium, they're actually building the sensory room as we speak," she said. "And just like we tapped into our partnership with Kulture City to open the sensory room at [our home stadium], we're working with them out at the Super Bowl."

            One of the Eagles Autism Foundation's key contributions is shipping items to be included in sensory bags similar to those offered at Eagles home games. Fidget toys, 'Swoop' [eagle] dolls, and noise-canceling headphones can make all the difference for individuals on the autism spectrum.

            15-year-old Max Hershman knows this well. The teen from Media, Pennsylvania, has worked with the Eagles Autism Foundation in the past as the host of a digital show, "Sensory Saturdays with Max." He is also a superfan of the Eagles and a strong advocate for inclusivity.

            Hershman will be traveling with the Eagles Autism Foundation to Arizona ahead of the Super Bowl next week. There, he will be a boots-on-the-ground ambassador, promoting the kinds of programs and accommodations that level the playing field for all fans.

            "I'm going to be like a helper for when people are down or sad or any bad emotion," he said. "I just give them a toy so that can help them feel better."

            Hershman will get a chance to interview players and even [assist in the opening of] a separate new sensory room at the Footprint Center in Phoenix, Arizona. He is also looking forward to touring the sensory room at State Farm Stadium.

            And if his predictions are correct, Hershman will have more to look forward to when returning to Philadelphia.

            "We're going to have a parade when we come back," he said...

              To the east, the Autism Society of Maine is a Winthrop, Maine-based nonprofit that serves individuals, professionals, and communities impacted by Autism. It attempts to do this through education, advocacy, and public awareness...
              A step in the right direction- that was the feeling Sunday in downtown Bangor as [individuals impacted by Autism] participated in the 20th annual Walk for Autism.

              What made this even more special is that for the first time in three years, it was an in person event.

              [Many people] participated in the [Autism Walk.]

              In addition to the walk, there were vendors, games and prizes.

              Organizers of the walk say the pandemic has been especially hard on the autism community.

              ”A lot of our children or our autistic adults, they’re used to having in person therapies, they’re used to being in school. That one-on-one,” says Cathy Dionne, Executive Director, Autism Society of Maine. “They don’t understand sometimes the social cues that happen online, by video. Or they can’t sit still enough to sit in front of a computer.”

              Dionne adds while in person instruction is returning, staffing shortages are preventing some [individuals affected by Autism] in Maine from receiving the services they need.

                  Pom-poms, balloon arches, community fun and purpose - the Autism Speaks Walk is back, and better than ever. What makes the 2021 Walk even better?

                  It has something for everyone!

                  In addition to [joining one another] in person, each Walk will retain fun, remote-participation options.

                  • The subject of the post from a few weeks ago was Ottawa, Ontario, Canada being home to an annual Walk for Autism Speaks Canada. Autism Speaks is North America's leading Autism science and advocacy organisation.

                    To the southwest, the Autism Society of Southern Arizona is a Tucson, Arizona-based nonprofit that attempts to empower everyone in the Autism community with the resources needed to live fully. This includes children with Autism Spectrum Disorders in the Tucson area...
                    ...the Autism Society of Southern Arizona is working to create community connection and one way of doing that is through their annual “All in for Autism” event.

                    “It’s great because we got a chance to see that we’re not alone...” said participant Chris Reid. “But ...[it is] nice to see that people from all walks of life are going through the same types of things.”

                    Reid and son Alaric were among [many individuals impacted by Autism, including children with Autism Spectrum Disorders] who showed up at Rillito Racetrack for this year’s event. Reid said it is great seeing more awareness being brought to the autism community.

                    “It’s amazing to see Tucson becoming much more aware and providing resources for [individuals impacted by Autism, including children with Autism Spectrum Disorders.]”

                    This event is the organizations largest fundraiser. The money raised, allows the organization to continue providing all their programs free of charge.

                    Organizers also said the event is about creating a safe space to connect.

                    “The main point is to create a sensory friendly space. That is we’re not trying to crowd anybody in. It’s for the autistic community to come together and connect with one another, and have some fun and find their people,” said Autism Society of Southern Arizona executive director Kate Elliott.

                    Adults and kids had the chance to participate in various activities in a sensory friendly environment. Some activities that people enjoyed included art projects [and] science experiments...

                    Harlowe Salkowski was among the participants who enjoyed the day’s activities.

                    “Just walking around saying hi to the Autism Society, people that I know...” said Salkowski.

                    Parents were also able to learn more about the organizations and resources available to them throughout Southern Arizona.

                    “It’s so hard to find schools and therapists and connect to things. So coming out to things like this allows you to talk to the people at the organization one after another and find what they do and how that works with your [particular Autism situation.]” said Elliott.

                    While the event was only for a day, the Reid family is hoping to see more events like this one around town.

                    “It’s nice to see that Tucson has more. events surrounding it. It’d be great to see more events like this going on in the future,” said Reid.

                    Elliot said the community can look forward to [other events such as] a possible art show in November...

                      Downeast Horizons ...also works to raise awareness.

                      Tuesday morning, Downeast area children and adults with autism gathered with [those closest to them] for the annual “Downeast Horizons Autism-Awareness Walk-A-Thon” in Ellsworth.

                      The Walk-A-Thon [goes through] State Street, up Maine Street, on to School Street and back to Knowlton Park where it started.

                      The event raises [funds for] Downeast Horizons programming throughout the summer.

                      “They love being part of the community,” said Downeast Horizons Executive Director Tony Zambrano. “The smiles on their face, doing something other than just going to [a fast food restaurant.] Just doing something. A fun event where they all get together. These are their friends, you know? And they get to show off.”

                        St.Amant Foundation has proudly partnered for [another] year with the Manitoba Moose for an Autism Acceptance campaign in [to raise funds for] St.Amant Autism Programs. The 2023 Autism Acceptance Game is being held on Saturday, April 1, 2023! [An individual served by] St.Amant’s Autism Program [and those closest to him/her are going to] be invited to do a puck-drop and participate in the ceremony.

                        Each year since returning to Manitoba for the 2015-16 AHL season, the Manitoba Moose have been proving that they can maintain an entertaining, yet inclusive, atmosphere by hosting what has been known as their Autism Awareness game. The team turns the music down, forgoes the flashy lights, and even has a quiet room for those who need it to create a more inclusive environment for individuals with autism while keeping the [good] atmosphere Moose fans have come to expect at Canada Life Centre. That game returns this season on April 1, along with the accompanying month-long campaign in support of St.Amant Foundation and the development of their six Early Learning classrooms that give preschool-aged children with autism a place to learn, make friends, and to prepare for kindergarten.

                        Together, these campaigns have contributed to the over $70,000 raised for St.Amant over the [last several years] years. Those funds have been essential in outfitting the Early Learning Classrooms with teaching resources. This year’s funds [are going to] the development of a sixth classroom.

                        In 2022, the Manitoba Moose generously donated $20,000! Players came to visit St.Amant’s Early Learning Classrooms and enjoyed an afternoon spending quality time with the children.


                        The Manitoba Moose Autism Acceptance Game is taking place on Saturday, April 1 at 2pm...

                        ...Sensory toolkits will be available at the game provided by the Manitoba Moose (see Guest Services on the day of the game – first come, first served). No ticket required for children 2 and under.

                          In the United Kingdom, the North East Autism Society (NEAS) is a Chester-le-Street-based nonprofit that attempts to empower individuals with Autism. This includes children with Autism Spectrum Disorders in the region...
                          Organisers say the event proved a big success, with [many] people taking part, and the [NEAS] is hoping even more join in this year to make it a record event.

                          This year’s walk takes place on Friday, April 14, and there will also be activities and crafts for children, face painting, competitions and prizes up for grabs on the day.

                          Tyne and Wear Fire and Rescue Service will also be there, along with food vendors including ...the charity’s mascot Snowdrop the Spikeshuffler.

                          Jon Appleton, Community and Events Fundraising Officer at NEAS, said: “Our annual Walk for Acceptance is always hugely popular and it’s brilliant to see so many [individuals affected by Autism, including children with Autism Spectrum Disorders] stepping out [for] NEAS, [allowing us] to champion our message of autism acceptance.

                          “All of the money raised from entries and sponsorship will help us to continue delivering our frontline services across the North-east, such as ...employment services.”

                            He’s non-verbal so that makes it a little challenging for him to interact with others.

                            “He uses a communication device to communicate,” she said. “So sometimes that makes it very difficult for him to make friends and to approach other children.”

                            The Short family decided to participate in the Autism Speaks Walk in support of Lincoln. It was their seventh year taking part in the walk.

                            They were among the [many] other [affected by Autism, including children with Autism Spectrum Disorders] to [participate in the Walk on] Saturday.

                            Autism Speaks, which was founded in 2005, is a national organization dedicated to helping provide resources to families with individuals with autism.

                            “The more that we can do for Autism Speaks, the better,” she said. “They’ve done a lot for us. They’ve been a great resource for us and they provide a lot of scientific research.”

                            The Short family and friends raised more than $3,000 this year for the Autism Speaks Cincinnati Walk, adding to the overall total of more than $83,000.

                            It's just a little more than $38,000 short of the Cincinnati goal.

                            “We can contribute to that and hopefully pay it forward and help somebody else like we were helped by this organization,” she said. “If we can help other people that’s the goal.”
